, usually you can. the law has a bright line. it says if you engage in a wongful action, there is a defense called the insanity defense which never works as most of us know because we don't recognize it. should we recognize it, that's an interesting question. should we have a more robust concept of diminished responsibility in light of the understanding that some people have less control over their preferences and desires or should we have better sentencing schemes or get rid of incarceration and come up with different models of trying to deal with punishment once we understand people have wrong selections. i think those are all interesting questions, but is there free will? well, the fact that almost everybody in the audience raised either their right or left hand contemplated it and were quickly able to act and respond. that to me says, yes, there is. now what do we want to do about it? now that we understand that those of us in the audience or up here that like chocolate cake may not have control over it, how do we want to account for that if at all in the criminal justice system? to dat
government, which has been weakened, it is the assad government, which is on the defensive and it is state that wants a negotiated settlement. the syrian government is just as committed to fighting this war until the end. it says its army is still strong. but its heavy firepower hasn't been able to finish off its opponents and crush the rebels. >> this is the frontline, using tanks, mortars, cluster bombs. you name it. >> neither side has the upper hand militarily and they are not close to negotiating an end to the war either. >> well, the conflict there in syria is expected to be at the top of the agenda at the annual summit of the gulf arab nation. leaders of the g.c.c. countries have arisen for talks. it is expected they will repeat a call for assad to step down. tensions are neighboring iran will also be discussed. egypt's elections committee has said it will announce on tuesday the official results off of votes on the constitution. nearly 2/3 of egyptians voted in favor of the draft charter. >> from the beginning the national salvation front said this constitution does not represent t

the changes, but there is no defense to making the changes. even if it is a historical building. that is not a defense. when i get involved, it is because 90% of the time, the tenant is the only one who gets the notice, though the notice is addressed both to the tenant and landlord. next thing you see, you are handed a piece of paper by some stranger, and it is a lawsuit. then you need to find a lawyer. probably 90% of these cases are in federal court. it becomes much more costly to get a lawyer involved. most lawyers charged somewhere between $5,000 or $10,000 to get involved in some of these cases. you need to file a formal answer in the court. you will be in a mediation process, which means you will meet with people appointed by the court to try to resolve this issue. the revolution is just what i said. it is major repairs if they are appropriate, and not all repairs are in demand. and, to settle the damaged portion of the case. in my experience, the damages claimed usually run somewhere between $15,000 or $5,000, and attorneys fees generally run between $10,000 or $15,000. m
the channel, and the french were then crippled in defense of paris. part of the problem with the dunkirk evacuation by the british was that the left all their equipment in france. they had no time to take their guns, their tanks, their trucks. so the when the british soldiers ended up in southern england after the evacuation, they really only had uniform's on the backs. >> when did that evacuation take place? >> it was a late may, and finished -- >> late may 1940? >> first couple days of june. by the second of june it was virtually over. >> for couple weeks into the invasion of france it was over? >> the french -- a lot of the french military felt that they had lost the battle for the country by this done. it actually went on for another several weeks, because the germans had to reset their tanks and aligned themselves and push down towards paris. they hadn't at this point conquered paris, but the french did the best they could, but at this point the writing was certainly on the wall. friends had to drop out of the war. i think it was june 22. so that evacuation was over by the second of

remember you know how i devour books and i am the only criminal defense attorney in possession of such a treasure. do you remember when we spent that long evening together at an airport and either coming in or leaving new york city and i had the book and had martinis and we read the book together and you loved one line "female criminals can be unwidely uncunning" and we had that conversation about why airportings never have clocks and after that i saw you two times and more sorrow and the first is when you family were in the gold country and i met you there before we went back to our house. although it was summer rain pored all day long. the pewter sky was inseparable from the horizon and you my brother and by that time were also becoming inseparable from the horizons of your illness and the line between you it and were blurring. it was during that first visit i understood that you would die and not eventually but sooner than that you. you were in a wheel care and -- chair and we waited while abbey and the boys got the care. it's the first time we were alone together.
. that does not make any difference. the defense has been tried in court. is a civil rights statute. -- it is a civil rights statute. they can be a perfectly legitimate plaintiffs to bring a lawsuit, and there are a number of people who belong to disability organizations that actually, that is what their livelihood is, bringing these lawsuits. the gentleman over here, who was also a lawyer knows of at least one case involving two lawsuits. they started all neighborhoods. the target places like san francisco because this is an old city with old buildings, virtually none of which comply. we only have new construction that would be billed to 1988 compliance standards, usually. whatever kind of business you have, the building part does not enforce ada compliance. you have your architect look at the ada if you are going to make a major revision anyway. is very expensive to do that. the demand letter is a requirment for the state -- is a requirement for the state laws to be brought. for civil rights cases, you are expected to know the law and be in compliance. they do not make a demand un

for secretary of defense -- chuck hayes cogel. how will these nominations go/ guest: chuck hagel has not been nominated yet. john kerry was announced by the white house on friday. the fact that kerry was announced does not bode well for the trial balloon of chalk .eguck hagel we have seen john mccain say they are going to vote for him. chuck hagel has been questioned by a number of republicans. lindsey graham is considered a more moderate republican. there is a concern with hagel and the pro-israel lobby. they tried engagement with iran for the first year of the administration and went to the toughest sanctions in history. hagel has been an opponent of those sanctions. if he changed his view, i think that would improve his chances. look at where he is on the foreign policy debate. obama has taken positions that are more to the center than hagel. host: if senator kerry becomes secretary of state, what does he bring? guest: john kerry will have to navigate the new relationship with political islam. as countries open up more and become more democratic, part is affiliated with the muslim brotherh
be attacked, the germans recognized the forces in a natural defensive place and spend several days pouring it with german veterans, every single -- the place was pre registered, there were bunkers, it was a death trap. there were hundreds and hundreds of thousands of mines across the forest floor and conifer trees blocked the sunlight, it was hard to see at times. in blog co. a battalion was placed at the reserve unit. it was fair, special operations missions and many of them took place. but all the men have universally said one thing, our longest day was not d-day. was december 7th, 1944. let me take you now to the second ranger battalion, one of their greatest battles. in many ways it is an untold story in a place called bird seen, practically an entire army tank regiment was task -- sort of the at that time the farthest penetration into germany. the tank regiment was practically destroyed. behind dirk steen was held 400. the only people that were left in reserve was the second ranger battalion. it became a minister -- men with -- germans moved around the burnout houses, germans send wha

's all right. i already feel the glow of san francisco's progressive approach to things. and in defense to the other counties, i think that, you know, that's the challenge we always face with legislation, should one size fit all? and i think that the whole purpose of the realignment approach was to allow individual counties to experiment with
there and makes money. maybe i should start in illegal business. advise me as my criminal defense attorney. >> you will be the are an awful -- hon., wonderful person that you are. melissa: there is no penalty. >> it takes five minutes to develop an l.l. seat. limited liability company that you can develop online. it takes five minutes. what you need to do is in a regulatory fashion the police have to monitor a better so they can coordinate with each other so that they can crack down, break it down, and prevent people from selling whenever it is, what a personal services, whether it'sandbags, or whether it's anything else that's inappropriate, illegal, unlawful. melissa: you think people should be worried about running illegal businesses online? >> have to tell you, if it is an online business you have a much better probability of driving in it, ding it, becoming enough to been york, and succeeding than if you opened the shop but everyone could see a year. it's a big problem. melissa: give me your advice. >> no. and where i practice in california, there are taskforce at crack down on counterfeit ha
in self-defense to kill their kidnappers, captain and mate of the ship. so the slave trade was no longer a slave trade. it is a kidnapping ring and therefore illegal. they made the slave trade illegal and was the first step in our movement towards emancipation and people began rallying around him as the southerners and house of representatives tried to shut him out as he pleaded for emancipation. that aroused northerners. the quakers at first and others who realized john quincy on this was a devout christian is that this goes against all fundamentals of christianity. patrick henry said the same thing and soon you have this abolition movement beginning to grow and grow. the more they try to silence john quincy adams, the more he spoke out. they passed a categorical, making it against the rules of the house to use the word slavery. anytime you trade the essay, the speaker of the house from tennessee to my future president polk city is out of order and southerners would shout them down saying order, order. so he started pulling out petitions from his constituents at first, but then over the
the western defense command were allowed to reclaim their cameras. that's why bill manbo had a camera and is comfortable walking around in public. so what did he shoot? seashell parades. boy scout and is very active at heart mountain. here you've got the boy scout at the head of the parade with the american flag in the dry nature with the time just behind. and then maybe i'm not so classic american image. sumo wrestling is part just open my camp, very much again like the japanese culture being practiced with permission of the war relocation authority. if you could see the faces of the folks behind, it's clearly a light moment in this particular match. and looks as though the older gentleman has been pushed out of the ring by the younger guy others' cultural historians might see some interesting comic relief going on because there's a fair amount of unspoken intergenerational conflict at the camp between the immigrant generation. so there's a way in which the young man pushing the old man out of the ring may have had a certain kind of tension breaking humor to it. the vote really gets
the budget while he was doing it. and there was huge pressure on him to spend more defense, and he was the one guy who understood how to stop that. he used to talk about "those boys at the pentagon," i know them. >> he knew those boys at the pentagon. doris, here's a great example of lyndon johnson, the man you knew so well. lyndon johnson wouldn't go out holding press conferences talking act eisenhower. this segment is not going to be about ike, but it is -- we're just talking about presidents who rise and presidents who fall. eisenhower's on his way up by now. but you had, of course, lbj constantly drawing on johnson's -- on eisenhower's wisdom. >> and, you know, the great thing about eisenhower, too, was just that he was so popular among the people. that great song "i like ike, because ike is easy to like," no one else had such a good song. but lbj is rising, too, and i think it's about time that he does. he left under such a cloud, the scar in vietnam so, so painful at the time he left, and the combination now of some distance from the war, the recognition that what he accompli
in, legal analyst and, criminal defense attorney. i want to go to you first. at the end of the day this whole thing is just an argument about> was the senate in session or was it not? >> the president may have skirted the law little bit like sidelining it, but did they cross over theine? no. does this happen all the time?li yes. itss does. t >>he the skirted the law like im wearing a skirt. gerri: that would be known. >> let's take a step back and design for this was to do. the founding fathers said look, if you have to make a temporaryr appointment, the senate confirmm it, we will not drag the senate back in, so mr. president do what you have to do, goes for the convenience of the senateth not to screw the senate which is what the president is doing.we gerri: this is a family show. was a president trying to get around the senate? do something a senate did not like? >> he may have skirted, but he did not go over the line. so legally it is proper. you can't argue with that. >> they killed it, he threw it out the window. because first of allt is in recession. they're supposed to be g
mouth shut because i think truth is a defense and it's unfortunate if in fact the case he has been punished either by the consumer or investors for that matter for speaking out personally or politically but here's the reality of the battlefield. nothing's changed post-election. as opposed to pre-election. the uncertainty of the tax situation, the fiscal cliff that everyone is tired of hearing about, frankly. the overburdensome regulatory environment that we're in is depressing growth, particularly for small business. and i think that's a primary distinction here as we talk about business itself because all business is not created equal and the president's jobs council who has some wonderful folks, some friends of mind on it, wholly inefficient in my view because there is no representation from small business on that jobs council. melissa: yeah. catherine, let me ask you, when i look what happened in this case of darden because it seems like something that has happened to a bunch of different companies, my takeaway at the end of the day for sure they're not going to hire anyone and
thing to say. >> you realized afterwards. >> it sounded defensive. this is an issue. there's nothing wrong with disagreeing with somebody. there is something wrong with being offensive. >> that's my point about it. i think i have complete respect, having been brought up a catholic, many catholics are anti-contraception, anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage. i have got no problem with respecting their views. the moment i start hearing the kind of rhetoric that kirk cameron, the "growing pains" star came out with on the show, gay lifestyle being the abomination of the world, i get very angry because i think, i'm not gay, but if i'm gay and listening to this, i'm thinking who the hell are you to tell me i'm the abomination of the world. people would look at you as one of the great -- you're voted one of the most influential men in the world for your teaching and books. they look at you for guidance in a time when america in particular is going through an incredibly fast change in attitude to many things. what are you going to do in your gilded ivory tower, responsibility of influence as you
emotions, we may also repress our immune defenses. how does that play out in various diseases? >> well, when i looked at the kind of people that would be coming under my care in palliative care, but also the kind of people who would get sick when i was in family practice, a number of salient characteristics presented themselves. one was the repression of anger. people didn't know how to express negative emotion. they were afraid to do so or did not know when they were angry. people who were pleasers, they tried to always not to disappoint other people. they never knew how to say no. they took on everything without a murmur, because they saw their role as always being the caregivers and the caretakers. and they had an exceedingly powerful sense of duty, role and responsibility. now, if you look at the role of healthy assertion of boundaries and anger, for example, it's actually there to protect you. i'm talking about healthy anger. it's not there to attack anybody; it's just there to protect your boundaries. that's the same role as the immune system have. the immune system also function
